How many cards do I need to run 3 monitors?
I'm currently running a GTX 570 and want to run a 3 monitor set-up. Does Nvidia support the same kind of thing like the "Eyeinfinity" from ATI?

No. Nvidia's solution is Nvidia Surround for a maximum of 3 monitors off a minimum of 2 cards

Sorry for the late reply to this, but I thought it important enough to add.

Heedless is right. However, there IS at least one Nvidia "partner" that has come up with a solution on their own:

Further review here: http://www.guru3d.com/article/kfa2-geforce-gtx-560-ti-mdt-x5-review/

Also, using a dual GPU card like a GTX 590 WILL allow up to 3 monitors to be used via Display Port.

Good luck.

nice idea, but you could not run 3 monitors for gaming off of a 1GB card, thats WAY to little Vram. you need about 2-3GB for 3 monitors to work good.
And if you use two graphics cards, they split the Vram in half so basically if your running Two Asus ENGTX570 1.2gb in sli you would only be rendering with 1.2gb, and not 2.4gb
